How to differentiate bet Z. caracutta and Z. oenoplia.
Attaching the pics taken at Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Borivli, Mumbai in the last week of Sept 2009.


Z. oenoplea:
the twig and the lower surface of leaves are tomentose with golden silky hairs. upper surface is shining glossy. fruit are ripeing black, about 0.6-0.8 cm across; rind soft. styles 2.

Zizyphus caracatta Buch-Ham. ex Rox:
leaves glabrous above, glabrescent beneath, trinerved;deep green, ripening black, rugose, 1.5 cm in diameter, rind hard, stony. styles 3-fid.


There is a spelling correction in these two names. It is Ziziphus caracutta Buch.-Ham. ex Roxb.
and Ziziphus oenoplia ( L. ) Mill. Both belong to the family Rhamnaceae

I had seen this plant on a roadside in Kottayam Dist in Kerala. The leaves look somewhat like Jackal Jujube leaves. But I feel that the leaves are more shiny than the Jackal Jujube leaves. Can anyone please identify this plant ?

Ziziphus species in efi with keys. 


Zizyphus oenoplea. silky hairy leaves, fruit black.


Yes, it is Z. oenoplia. Another clue is that the leaves are often unequal sided at the base.

Kindly identify this small tree, most probably of zizyphus genus. Photographed at the reserved forest Tiruvanamalai, Tamil Nadu on the 29th Jan 2014.

The black fruit about 5-8 mm is edible. Leaves about 2.5 cm long. Small tree height 1-2 metres.


Zizipus oenoplia of Rhamnaceae?

Tamil name: சூரைப்பழம் 


Yes, … is correct in ID. 

Please note the correct spelling – Ziziphus oenopolia (L.) Mill.
Meanwhile, …, You mentioned the habit as “..Small tree height 1-2 metres“.
If you closely observe, its is a scandent shrub.
Thank you for making me nostalgic by showing this wonderful fruit 🙂


Thank you for the identification. i did get to eat many of fruit being in season so i can understand why one could be nostalgic tho is was a first time for me.

and i need to very much improve my botanical observation and terminology – thanks for pointing out that this plant cant be called a tree.


its a straggler

Ziziphus oenoplia??


Looks right. Thank you very much, ma’am.


Yes, this should be Ziziphus oenoplia..


Frugivores like bulbuls are very fond of the fruits.

NOTE: The epithet oenopolia is “corrected” form of the otherwise long-known oenoplia
September 28, 2009 … along Saphale Ghat 


   

Other than the generic name બોર bor (or બોરડી bordi), there is another name erandi OR eramdi listed for Ziziphus oenoplia in Biological Diversity of Gujarat [PDF].
Eranda is a well-known name for castor-oil plant. Would like to know whether Z. oenoplia indeed shares the name એરંડી erandi with castor-bean plant.


“Eramdi” does appear as a vernacular name of “Zizyphus oenoplia in the Flora of Gujarat State (vol. 1, 1978) by GL Shah. This word is spelt as એરમડી in the Bruhad Gujarati Kosh (Comprehensive Gujarati Dictionary, part 1, 1976) by Prof. Keshavram K. Shastree [sic], quite distinct from એરંડો / એરંડ of Ricinus communis. I don’t know what exactly એરમડી denotes in the context of Z. oenopolia. This species is often known as બોરડીનો વેલો.

Now while I am re-compiling common names of Ziziphus oenoplia after some gap of years, to my surprise, the epithet has got “corrected” to oenopolia. The genus name itself has its own records of spelling variances, and there are some posts in our database that discussed it. 
Spelling variances are confusing, obscure etymology makes it difficult. Please help in knowing what would oenoplia OR oenopolia mean. 
oinos = wine OR vine ? and pleion = more, many OR plia = spine ?

The first and third pictures are deformities in the same plant I think.
